public class Glueshrink
extends AbstractCode
implements CountConvertible, DimenConvertible, Theable

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \glueshrink.

The Primitive \glueshrink

The primitive \glueshrink translates a shrink part of a glue value into a length. The shrink order is stripped and just the size is preserved. The unit is changed to pt. For instance, if the value considered is 8pt minus 1.23 fil then \glueshrink returns 1.23 pt.

The primitive \glueshrink can be used wherever a length is expected. The primitive is also applicable to \the.

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨glueshrink⟩
      → \glueshrink ⟨glue⟩ 

Examples

   \glueshrink\skip1

Method Detail

convertCount

public long convertCount(Context context,
                         TokenSource source,
                         Typesetter typesetter)
                  throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: CountConvertible
This method converts a register into a count. It might be necessary to read further tokens to determine which value to use. For instance an additional register number might be required. In this case the additional arguments Context and TokenSource can be used.

Specified by:
convertCount in interface CountConvertible
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for new tokens
typesetter - the typesetter to use for conversion
Returns:
the converted value
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
See Also:
CountConvertible.convertCount( de.dante.extex.interpreter.context.Context, de.dante.extex.interpreter.TokenSource, de.dante.extex.typesetter.Typesetter)

convertDimen

public long convertDimen(Context context,
                         TokenSource source,
                         Typesetter typesetter)
                  throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: DimenConvertible
This method converts a register into a dimen. It might be necessary to read further tokens to determine which value to use. For instance an additional register number might be required. In this case the additional arguments Context and TokenSource can be used. The return value is the length in scaled points.

Specified by:
convertDimen in interface DimenConvertible
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for new tokens
typesetter - the typesetter to use for conversion
Returns:
the converted value in sp
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
See Also:
DimenConvertible.convertDimen( de.dante.extex.interpreter.context.Context, de.dante.extex.interpreter.TokenSource, de.dante.extex.typesetter.Typesetter)

the

public Tokens the(Context context,
                  TokenSource source,
                  Typesetter typesetter)
           throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: Theable
This method is the getter for the description of the primitive.

Specified by:
the in interface Theable
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for further tokens to qualify the request
typesetter - the typesetter to use
Returns:
the description of the primitive as list of Tokens
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
